 6 of 12 


A year can be a long time to wait for a birthday, especially when you are a very tiny bear. Little Pip is driving Daddy Grizzle nuts with his daily countdown in How Many Sleeps Till My Birthday? by Mark Sperring (Puffin, £6.99) – a feeling many parents will recognise. Florentine and her friend Pig are having party problems, too. They are all set for a picnic in the sunshine, until they realise Pig ate the last of the apples. Find out how they avert dinnertime disaster and have ago at cooking up their delicious recipes in Florentine And Pig Have A Lovely Picnic by Eva Katzler (Bloomsbury, £10.99). Kittens Tom and Millie are off on a grand outdoor adventure too, in Tom & Millie’s Great Big Treasure Hunt by Guy Parker-Rees (Orchard, £6.99). Follow them as they explore the beach, town and playground, inviting friends and readers to help them discover colours, shapes and numbers along the way.
